All across Leuven, we're joining forces For a climate neutral city
Europe selects Leuven as pioneering climate city
Leuven is one of the 100 cities chosen by the European Commission for the mission '100 Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities by 2030'. With this mission, Europe supports the selected cities with expertise and (financial) resources in their journey towards climate neutrality by 2030.
Climate neutral? That means choosing the best possible future for everyone. With more green, less flooding, more traffic safety, less noise, healthier air, more future-proof jobs and more social justice.
To achieve the Leuven of the future, we need a plan. We drew up a plan with the help of Leuven-based experts: the Roadmap towards a climate neutral Leuven. We are now accelerating the realisation of this plan through breakthrough projects and inciting organisations, companies, governments and inhabitants to action. Those commitments will be compiled into the first Leuven Climate City Contract.
In close co-operation with Leuven-based partners we are constantly looking for new solutions. Solutions that make the plan towards a climate neutral Leuven smarter and smarter. Solutions that allow us to take big steps towards our goal.
